Edinburgh is a famous historical city- if your visit is for one day it is important to take in the main sights of the city, but be prepared to rise early for there is a lot to pack in. The Castle and a museum will fill up most of your day but be sure to stop for both lunch and dinner in some of the cities best and most popular restaurants.
Day 1 - Edinburgh
Rise early and take the train into the centre to visit the castle. Its always best to get there in the morning to set aside the time for the queues. It is the most popular attraction and a must for a first visit. At lunch time walk down the Royal Mile to Wee Windaes Restaurant, famous for traditional Scottish food. Afterwards move onward to the National Gallery of Scotland to while away the afternoon taking in the exhibits. Buy your ticket for the last Mercat Tour of the evening for guaranteed chills leading around the old closes and graveyards these are timed to finish at Waverely Station and for the last trains leaving that night.
